The iPhone XS and XS Max, introduced by Apple in September 2018 and offered for sale in our country as of 2019, dragged the company’s sales to the bottom. The iPhone XS family, which is the device where the exchange rate difference is felt the most due to its price in dollar terms, stands out as the device with the most stable interface among its competitors. The most important reason for this is iOS, the operating system that Apple produces for its own devices.

​ ​ Webtekno review:

Mi Mix 3 is already at the top with its performance, we see it, we know it. As a matter of fact, the thing that differs the most is the front camera of the device. Unable to decide where to put the front camera in previous flagships, Xiaomi tried a sliding system with Mi Mix 3. Thanks to this system, more space has been obtained for the sensors to be located on the front camera. This reflects positively on the front camera performance of the device, at least making it noticeable among Xiaomi devices.

Webtekno review:

Mate 20 and Mate 20 are two devices specially produced for the phablet class, introduced just after Apple’s iPhone attack. It is not known whether Huawei will continue the Mate series after losing Android support. As a matter of fact, considering that it will continue to receive software support according to its price, it is still among the logical choices. The reverse charging feature of the device represented a first in the smartphone industry. Although it lags behind the devices that have been released in recent months in terms of rear camera hardware, it can still be used.
